Never heard of it? That’s ok! Originally from China, this fermented tea can shrink fat cells and lowers triglyceride concentrations, which are dangerous fat accumulations in the blood. Have a glass or two of this tea each day to reap the benefits!
Barberry is a shrub, and the stems, roots, and leaves can all be used to make tea! They contain berberine, a fat-burning compound. Studies show that they can also reduce the surface area of fat receptors, meaning that even when you do consume high-fat foods, this tea could keep your body from absorbing it and adding more body fat!
White tea has the amazing ability to block fat cells’ formation while simultaneously boosting lipolysis, the body’s natural process of breaking up fats that are already stored. On top of that, white tea is high in catechins, which are antioxidants that signal for the release of fat in cells. Even better, white tea can make your liver more efficient at converting fat into energy!
This South African tea is a natural fat melter! The compounds contained in this tea can help to inhibit the formation of new fat cells, and they also help boost the metabolism of fat. Processing existing fat more quickly and blocking new fat from forming? Yes, please!
Try to replace your coffee habit with a tea habit (or at least one cup a day!) and remember that you can do a lot with a cup of tea! Try adding fresh herbs, lemon or orange slices, and other interesting flavors, but watch out for adding too much sugar. If you aren’t a fan of hot beverages, try brewing them and drinking them cold!
Try a combination of at least 2 of these teas each day, combined with your healthy diet and exercise routines, and see how much fat you melt in a month!
